Wisdom Teeth Extraction Edison

When it comes to oral health, there is one thing that most people are unaware of. Many people are either misinformed or unaware of their wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, are the last group of molars to emerge in most people's late teens or early twenties. Some dentists recommend removing wisdom teeth as soon as they break through the gum line, while others only recommend wisdom tooth extraction if they are causing problems with your oral health. Whatever the dentist's advice, it's important to understand your wisdom teeth before deciding whether or not to have them removed.

Why Do We Have Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth were needed for chewing and eating in earlier humans. Our forefathers ate a much tougher diet than we do today, including leaves, roots, and meat, which could have worn down their teeth more quickly, necessitating the third row of molars. They are no longer appropriate because the types of food we consume have changed over time. Some people never grow them at all as a result of evolution over time. Some people grow them, but they are unaffected. About 85 percent of people with wisdom teeth would need to get them extracted.

Why Do wisdom tooth Cause Problems?

Humans have evolved smaller jaws over time than our forefathers. As a result, we don't have enough space in our mouths to hold additional teeth. One of the issues that wisdom teeth can cause is that they crowd our other teeth, causing cosmetic issues such as crooked teeth, as well as jaw pain, swollen gums, and other mouth irritations.

They may be impacted, which is a common issue. This occurs when the teeth are misaligned and there isn't enough space for them to crack through the surface, causing pain.

Another issue with wisdom teeth is that they are so far back that cleaning them can be difficult. This increases the chances of infection and tooth decay. Wisdom teeth extraction is often recommended by dentists for these reasons.

Wisdom tooth extraction

While this is an outpatient operation, it is still a surgery. A local or general anaesthetic may be administered. Following the treatment, you will be given guidance about how to care for yourself so that you can recover quickly and prevent infection.

Contingent upon the intricacy of the technique, your Dentist for a Wisdom tooth or an oral specialist may utilize one of three kinds of anaesthesia: local, general, or sedation.

While this is an outpatient operation, it is still a surgery. A local or general anaesthetic may be administered. Following the treatment, you will be given guidance about how to care for yourself so that you can recover quickly and prevent infection.

Your dentist will make an incision in the gum tissue after the anaesthetic has been administered. This reveals both the tooth and the bone. The dentist can now cut the bone in order to reach the tooth root. He or she would then extract the wisdom tooth and clean the area of any debris. The dentist can stitch the open wound (not everyone requires stitches) and place gauze over the extraction site to encourage the formation of a blood clot after the extraction is completed.

After Extraction

Swelling is one of the most noticeable side effects of this treatment. For a few days, you might resemble a chipmunk! There could be some bruising as well. In most cases, the mouth will feel normal again within a week or two weeks. You've forgotten about the wisdom tooth extraction by then. There will be no more discomfort or infections, and you will be able to operate normally with your mouth.

For a few days, you'll probably want to stick to liquids and soft foods. This is your chance to indulge in ice cream and pudding if you so like. Smoking, hard foods, gum, and straws should all be avoided. A follow-up appointment will almost certainly be scheduled to ensure that your mouth is healing properly.

You should eat foods that don't need much chewing, as this can cause the blood clots and stitches to break down. When you're hungry, start eating soft foods like:

  • Smooth soups
  • Broth
  • Yogurt
  • Scrambled eggs
  • Mashed bananas
  • Cottage cheese
  • Apple sauce
